I have received training with Postpartum Support International and have completed level 1 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I work with individuals and couples. I am also one of the board members for The Birth Circle, and Empowering Fearless Birth. I have been a Certified Lactation Counselor for 7 years and still occasionally see breastfeeding clients.”
